University of Washington (UW) DNP 2021

Looked for another thread but couldn't find one, anyone applying to University of Washington's (UW) DNP program starting Autumn 2021? 

What track is everyone applying to? 

Does anyone know if any one thing is worth more weight in admissions (GPA, LORs, Experience, etc.)?

Does anyone know the profile of a competitive applicant? Someone in the 2020 thread posted a link for admission stats from 2018, looked like around a 35-45% acceptance rate, depending on the track.  I haven't been able to find any updated information. Anyone have any? 

I'll be applying to the Adult Gerontology Acute Care NP track!

Apps were due this past week, did anyone else on here apply? When I did one of the information sessions a couple weeks ago, they didn't now how many people would apply for the DNP program, but stated the BSN program had three times as many applicants as pre-COVID.

Hihi! I applied to the AGNP-PC track. I guess the number of applicants will increase for this year due to the pandemic. I am so nervous about the online essay and interviews.

Yeah I'm not sure, I could see it going either way, people are burned out from bedside because of COVID and trying to go NP, or people are burned out and don't want to go back to school.

I also applied to AGPC. Super nervous about the proctored essay! I don't understand why the unnecessary stress to only give 5min for an essay 😞

There is no interview this year, just the essays if I am understanding right, did anyone get email about these times essays? 
I applied to FNP and second time applying! Good luck to everyone!

It's just a timed essay, there won't be a face-to-face or video interview at all.  I got the same email today as well.
